Since the mid-1990s, when the problem first began to
be widely discussed among mental-health professionals,
comparisons have been made between excessive
computer use and addictions to gambling, drugs or
alcohol. There are differences, though, especially as
Internet addiction doesn’t usually involve losing money
or pose an imminent threat to one’s physical health.
Moreover, many experts say that an Internet addiction
diagnosis shouldn’t be based mainly on the amount of
time devoted to the activity. Instead, they say, what must
be examined is the negative effect the activity has on
someone’s life. Someone who stays home from school
or a job in order to remain online, for instance, or who
gains emotional satisfaction only from their gaming or
virtual social life, should be considered an addict.
Internet addiction is not yet accepted as a mental disorder
by the American Psychiatric Association or similar
professional organisations elsewhere (though it may soon
gain official recognition in China). Despite this, a wide
range of treatments is already available for it, including
rehabilitation programmes in South Korea, China, the
USA and other countries. Critics may point to this as
proof that addiction specialists are already benefitting
from creating a new group of patients to treat.
But that probably doesn’t matter to sufferers like 19-yearold Ben Alexander who, in September 2009, was the first
patient at ReSTART, a treatment centre in the USA. He
didn’t finish university because of his inability to limit
the amount of time he spent playing the video game
World of Warcraft. Hopefully, ReSTART will enable
Ben to regain control of his life.
